HISTORY OF WORLD WAR II FIGHTER NORTH AMERICAN P-51 MUSTANG
Discover the long-range single-engine US fighter and fighter-bomber, used by the United States Air Force (USAAF) during the development of World War 2 and the Korean War, among other war conflicts.
The Mustang P-51 was designed by North American Aviation (NAA) in 1940. The British sent another plane to build it, however, rejected the proposal to build one as old as the Curtiss P-40, and decided to build one better: the US fighter Mustang P-51.
The final version, the P-51D, was powered by a Packard V-1650-7 engine, a version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 66 supercharged with a pair of speeds and armed with six fifty-caliber machine guns.
The P-51 Mustang became a fundamental part of the USAAF and participated in the war zone of North Africa, the Mediterranean, Italy and the Pacific.
